How Can I Deactivate My Account

Whether you’re concerned about your online privacy or just getting tired of constant status updates from old school friends that you’ve since realised aren’t actually that cool, there are plenty of reasons why you might want to delete your Facebook account – and it’s not as hard as you might think.
Your iPhone enables you to deactivate your Facebook account with a few taps while using the Facebook app. Once your Facebook account is deactivated, you do not receive any notifications, and your Facebook friends will not be able to view your profile as well. All the pictures and posts shared by you get concealed till the time you reactivate your profile.

Note: You can reactivate your deactivated Facebook account anytime by typing your correct Facebook credentials (username and password) in the corresponding fields on the Facebook login page.

Here is how you can deactivate your Facebook account from your iPhone:

  1. Long press the Power button to switch on your iPhone.
  2. Swipe your finger to the right on screen (screen with the slide to unlock text) to unlock the device.
  3. From the displayed list of icons, tap the Facebook icon from the Home screen.
  4. On the opened window, tap the More icon (icon with the three horizontal lines) from the bottom-right corner.
  5. On the More window, under the SETTINGS section, locate and tap the Settings option.
  6. Once the Settings interface comes up, tap the General option.
  7. From the Settings window, tap Deactivate representing the Account option from the bottom.
  8. When the Enter Password interface opens up, in the Password field, provide the correct password, and tap Continue.
  9. When the next window appears, choose the appropriate option and populate the available fields with the desired values, and tap the Deactivate button to finally deactivate your Facebook account.
